While millions of fans may love the tantalizing tales of the Forrester’s and the Logan’s on CBS’ “The Bold and the Beautiful,” many of them may not think twice about what it takes to make the world’s most watched daytime soap opera come alive each and every weekday. In a new book released earlier this month by Sourcebooks, entitled “Becoming Bold & Beautiful: 25 Years of Making the World’s Most Popular Daytime Soap Opera” with foreword by the soaps “core four” Susan Flannery, John McCook, Ronn Moss and Katherine Kelly Lang, the hardcover release provides detailed insight from the 1987 debut year of the soap to present day. Included throughout are over 200 photographs featuring cast and crew members on Stage 31 of CBS Television City in Los Angeles, and on location in Malibu, Cabo San Lucas, and Aspen.

While it is unknown when the message was first posted on her official copy written website, Brenda Dickson (ex-Jill Foster, “The Young and the Restless”) is apparently promising to release a “Tell All Book” in the next couple of months that will begin with highlights of her experience at the “canceled” CBS daytime drama series (say what?) and ends with her time in Hawaii. The site says that if you want to know what happened in the tropical state with Dickson and other assorted matters, “read the book, my friends. You will learn a lot about what you think goes on, and what really goes on. Who really runs the country!”

The message in its entirety can be viewed at http://www.brendadickson.com.

Note: Dickson alleges some serious matters including sexual harassment from the deceased William J. Bell (creator of “The Young and the Restless” and “The Bold and the Beautiful”), something about the “Mafia,” and claims that she’s telling all now that “Y&R” has been canceled (the show has not been canceled).
